Robbers hit Little Caesars, Family Dollar stores

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Police need your help tracking down a couple of men suspected in at least five robberies and attempted robberies at businesses in Phoenix.

Surveillance video shows the two suspects walk into the Little Caesars and approach the counter.

When the cashier comes up, they pass over a handwritten note demanding money.

According to police, one of the suspects always keeps a handgun in his waistband.

After getting money, they simply leave the store. Although during this robbery, they didn't get any cash. However, the security cameras got clear pictures of them.

"They don't use disguises, no masks, they keep their faces. You can see them perfectly with the different video and pictures," says Darren Burch of Silent Witness.

The crime spree began back on July 20th at this Little Caesars store in Tempe near 48th Street and Baseline -- which they hit twice.

We talked to a worker at one of the two Family Dollar stores victimized, who saw the suspects taking off. She didn't want to be identified.

"They were both wearing black shirts and they were past the parking lot, closer to the neighborhood and they were walking a fast speed, they weren't running, they weren't scared and they didn't hop into a car."

In all five incidents, police say the suspects have left on foot.

"We are thinking they're new at doing this. But at the same time we don't want them to get good at it and we definitely don't want them to hurt someone."

Both suspects have a similar description -- they are Hispanic 5'8, 17-20 years old and about 160 pounds. If you recognize them call Silent Witness.

That number is 480-WITNESS.
